Helping you face today’s food and energy challenges.

Increasing global demand for food and energy is placing pressure on agricultural systems as well as innovators. According to a recent Pew Research Center report, the global population is expected to grow 38% from 6.9 billion in 2010 to 9.6 billion by 2050.

Similarly, according to the U.S. Energy Information Administration, world energy consumption is expected to increase 56% between 2010 and 2040, driven by strong economic growth and expanding populations.

Our clients are developing technologies to address these challenges on a global scale, such as enhancing the potential of plants to be used as sources of renewable and sustainable fuel. These plants include:

  • Oilseed crops
  • Algae
  • Grasses

In addition, we are patenting strategies to increase crop yields, such as:

  • Increased drought tolerance
  • Stress and disease tolerance
  • Improved nitrogen usage

At GPG, we are working on the food and energy sources of tomorrow, today.
